Float these ideas at your next paddleboarding club meeting and start cruising towards your next fundraising goal.
Get coaches and more experienced club members to spend a weekend morning hosting a paddleboarding taster event for people who have never had a go at the sport before. Charge a fee for the lesson and board hire to help you on your way to your next fundraising goal.
Navigating waterways on a paddleboard puts you in a great position to spot discarded rubbish that litterpickers on the shore would be unable to reach. Make the most of this by organising a paddleboard-based charity clean up operation, asking supporters to sponsor you per bag of rubbish collected.
Given the investment you need to make in buying of hiring SUP (stand up paddleboarding) kit, it’s no wonder that people who enjoy the sport usually really, really love it! Make the most of this zeal by investing in club wristbands and selling them to members and supporters alike.
More difficult than it looks and definitely a challenge to do at speed, paddleboarding races will test the skills of even your most experienced club members and will give spectators a laugh of two in the process.
One of the things you have to accept as a paddleboarder is that you will probably fall off now and again. Use this to your advantage by running a You’ve Been Framed style contest for the most entertaining video footage of a soggy dismount. Charge people to submit their videos and then take to social media to get people voting for their favourite.
